Is there anything I should do beforehand to calm the nerves? I've never meditated, but I wonder if I should try.
If I had Valium, that would be an option.
im not sure if this is a practical suggestion as any philosophical or medicative suggestion would not work here in this instance...
but i would try something that rocks your emotions really hard right before the interview. something that would make the interview pale in comparison to the signifcance of what just occurred.
go ask a girl out in class that you like and fail hard. go bet a few hundred dollars in a casino and either win big or lose it all (may not be practical as i said, as youre interviewing for a job) or go bungy jump if you have a fear of it. something like that.
then the interview, because of your rocked emotions, would allow you to be just chill and you can do it really easily
